KACHORI RECIPE | A POPULAR STREET FOOD

KACHORIS STUFFED WITH MOTH DAL.
kachori
  Two years back when my neighbour called us for dinner, she made these kachoris and that was extremely awesome. After that i tried that once, but that doesn't turn out so well and i couldn’t get the texture  and crispiness. Then after 2 years i tried out this  and that turned out real yum and so crispy.
  I used MOTH DAL for stuffing . You can also make Kachori with moong dal stuffing and peas kachori. 
The key for this recipe is making the stuffing very dry and frying the kachoris in the oil.


Kachori 

  Preparation Time : 15 mins+ 30 mins standing time | Cooking Time : 25 Mins |Yields: 10

     Moth dal   1/2 cup
     Maida | all purpose flour   2 cups
     Rava |sooji  1 tblsp
     Oil    1 tblsp (for kneading the dough)
     Salt  to taste
     Red chili powder   1 tsp
     Coriander powder  1/2 tsp
     Garam masala   1/4 tsp
     Amchoor powder   1/4 tsp
     Oil   for deep frying

  • Repeat the same procedure for the rest of the stuffed balls.
  • Heat the oil and check whether it is in a right heat.
  • To check whether it is in a right heat, put a pinch of dough in oil it should come up slowly.
  • If it doesnt come up the oil is yet to be heated .
